This worked a treat. I tried accompanied with potato wedges with chilli which was just delicious and very filling.

Delicious! Followed the recipe but left out the beans. Even fussy daughter - 'I don't like sausage casserole' loved it. Easy Peasey to make too! 5 stars

Made this today as even though its almost June its cold, wet & windy in Cumbria!!! Adapted the recipe a little due to what I had in fridge & also feeding two children. I used leeks along with the onion & garlic (as no peppers or celery) on the bean front to keep it child friendly I chucked a tin of baked beans in (again thats what I had in) served with mash, green beans & broccoli, both boys devoured it! I also put it into the slowcooker for around 5 hours, the remainder is in there for myself & partner for dinner later when he gets in (on warm now) easy to make, wholesome & tasty. Oh & I grilled the sausages a little first then straight into crockpot as dont like my sausages to resemble body parts!

delicious. i used 6 pork sausages that i diced, no chorizo. made it for 2 but could serve 3. didn't change the spices or the wine amount though, apart from adding some chilli powder. used kidney beans since thats all i had, tasted good with them. also fried the sausages a bit first to brown them. used red onion instead of brown. served it with sweet potato mash.

Just made this as a friday night alternative to fish and chips and needless to say it was not a mistake. Absolutely delicious! Will make for years to come.

Made this and it was delicious, I omitted the wine and used venison sausages instead, with a bit chilli, will definitely make this again.

LOVED THIS! It was delicious and hearty. I added carrots in addition to the other veg and cubes of potato instead of beans. It looked nothing like the pictures but the taste overruled this. I will be making again.

Wowser! great recipe. I too used fresh thyme and I added a head of fennel chopped. I didn't have any cooking chorizo as whole sausages in but I had a pack of cooking chorizo cubetti (200g) and used that instead. I baked my sausages first to reduce fat and ensure lovely and brown. Fried off the chorizo cubetti, then added the chopped onion, then the celery and fennel...then the smoked paprika, then the aduki beans and can of chopped tomatoes. incidentally 4 Italian sausages plus the chopped chorizo was more than enough for two (400g tin of toms and 400g tin aduki beans). We still had some left over. I served with frozen peas and a dollop of natural yoghurt with a sprink of chopped chives and smoked paprika. Very VERY good. Is is going to become a regular and is perfect comfort food.

Absolutely delicious, just the thing for a cold autumn evening. I browned the sausages first, before putting them in another dish while I fried the onions and other veg. Might use low-fat sausages next time, as I put 16 pork sausages in and the calories per quarter have come out sky-high (really love sausages)! Can really recommend this, very tasty.

This was a very very tasty dish. I used a tin of mixed spicy beans in sauce which added to the smokiness of the chorizo sausages. As this was for 2 I used 8 sausages (love sausages). I will definitely be cooking this again.
